Abstract

We captured and placed radio transmitters on 27, 37, and 51 female Rio Grande turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo intermedia) on the Encino, Norias, and Laureles divisions of King Ranch, respectively, in Brooks, Kenedy, and Kleberg counties, Texas. Mean annual sizes of home ranges were 838–5,867 ha, which were larger than most individual holdings of private property in Texas. Conservation plans should take this into consideration.
